SINGAPORE — The perennial debate over Singapore's foreign worker policy saw Trade and Industry Minister Chan Chun Sing cross swords on Monday (Jan 6) with opposition leader Pritam Singh, who repeatedly asked for a breakdown of the number of new jobs that went to Singaporeans, permanent residents (PRs) and foreigners.

Among other things, Mr Chan said that getting the local-foreign workforce balance right is an evergreen challenge. And to ensure that future generations of Singaporeans would always be employable for the jobs of tomorrow, one of the trade-offs would be that some investments brought in today might lead to foreigners being employed in higher and better-paying positions than Singaporeans.

Over time, with more jobs created and more Singaporeans being trained, they may one day take on the top job that was once occupied by a foreigner, he added. He also noted that local employment increased by nearly 60,000 between 2015 and 2018.

Mr Singh: "My original parliamentary question really was a question seeking data. Minister for Trade and Industry spoke of the local PMET share going up (from) 54 per cent to 57 per cent. And my question really is can we expect in future — either by way of (response to) a parliamentary question or by the Government on its own accord — (to be given data broken down) into Singaporeans and PRs? If the Government’s approach is, 'No we are not going to provide that data', can the Minister please share that detail with us here. Because it's pointless for us to keep asking for that data if the Government is not going to provide it."

When they try to hide data...think about it what is data showing that PAP refuse to let you see.

PAP says it has high integrity and regard for the truth then why are they hiding so much data from the people?
I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I will do my utmost to keep them alive.
Against tyrants and adversity, I will strive.
Together, a better future, we will realise......
